It’s that time of year again! St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, located in beautiful Starlight, Indiana, once again invites strawberry lovers young and old to the 35th annual Strawberry Festival on Saturday, May 25 and Street Dance on Friday, May 17. Come out and enjoy all the fun and delicious food that this gorgeous community has to offer.
At the festival, adults and children alike will love piling their berries high at the famous Build Your Own Strawberry Shortcake Station, and the wide variety of frozen strawberry fruit drinks and delicious fair foods are always a big hit as well. Those seeking a little more will not be disappointed by the buffet-style fried chicken and ham dinner. It’s complete with all the traditional fixings, including chicken & dumplings, homemade bread with strawberry butter, corn, slaw, green beans with new potatoes and dessert.
Bring the whole family out for a fun-filled day of food, family-friendly games and rides and arts and crafts. There will be carnival rides, a soap box derby track, booth games, bingo and much more. Visitors can also enjoy live entertainment throughout the day. Adults can join around the tables in the Wine & Beer garden to enjoy beer and award winning wine from Starlight’s own Huber Winery.
